  When first I heard about this topic for a short essay, it intrigued me greatly: The opportunity to write about something that I am passionate about is a great gift, and possible subjects whirled instantly through my mind…the farmland my family still holds, NMSU Aggie Basketball, good coffee, ch...
Thought I would post this here so that everyone could have a chance to read the full text without having to sort through snippets & blurbs in newspapers or interpret the sound bites on news shows. This text is taken directly from the White House website, as is President Obama's photo.     Wednesd...
Not long ago...way back in 2008 or so...one could expect 30 days from acceptance of terms to closing on a property to be reasonable.  With few exceptions, this is an unreasonably swift expectation today. Underwriting departments are swamped with work right now, and even the best of them are seein...
There's been a lot of focus on the Economic Stimulus package lately...and whatever happens, effects will take some time to be felt on a local level.  Why wait?  Why not see what can be done without Congress...and take charge of our own economic recovery on a local level?

I'm sure that...
Art. Architecture.  Arizona. The Desert.  Shape, form, function. Stunning views, the harmony of life & habitat. Elegance, comfort and making best use of the world that surrounds a location.     For years, decades even, architects have found inspiration in the desert beauty of Arizona.  Names like...
One of the things that Tucson is most proud of is its educational opportunities & offerings.  We've got highly competitive public schools (including BASIS Charter - consistently one of the nation's best ranked), highly selective private schools & specialized academies, Pima Community College - on...
I know I've got a lead foot sometimes, but I'm not crazy about it...rarely go over the limit by more than 5 MPH.  Nevertheless, when I need to get somewhere in a hurry, sometimes the traffic just seems to go so slow...and I know just the streets to travel where I can get away with it!
